I always thought that the initial stage of green water was caused by a bacterial bloom ?????shalu said:It is hard to imagine that the willow can even kill bacteria
Maybe your white cloudiness is the initial stage of green water. Most green water starts out as white cloudiness, and it can remain that way for quite some time.
About the killing: I was told that willow contains acetylsalicyl acid.
This should be known as a bacterial inhibitor.
